Frauenfeld – Wil update
filed on: 30.09.2013 (30th Sep 2013)
On the Frauenfeld-Wil railway (FW), Stadler units 7001 and 7002 are now in service.
7003 is delivered but not currently in service as it is only fitted only with the new signalling system (the old system will cease to be used in mid October, hence the unit cannot run in passenger service before that).
Driving Trailers 113 and 114 were taken to a scrapyard on Friday (27th September).
ASm are currently in negotiations concerning the purchase of a power car and a driving trailer set for use as a reserve unit at Langenthal.
CJ are also negotiating concerning purchase of the other four power cars, but funding for this is not yet confirmed (the volatge will furthermore have to be adapated from 1200 to 1500V).
Be 4/4 16 and 17 are expected to be retained by FW as reserve units.
